The Obama Presidency: High Gas Prices, More Debt, High Unemployment

President Obama may have inherited a tough economic situation, but again and again, he's made it worse. Obama's record so far includes an unemployment rate that has exceeded 8 percent for 37 straight months, a $15.5 trillion debt (a 46 percent increase in just three years), and gas prices that have more than doubled since he took office. If the president were serious about improving our economy and alleviating the burden on the American people, he would work with Republicans to cut spending, encourage private-sector job creation, and put in place a real all-of-the-above energy policy that would lower gas prices by developing domestic energy resources.
